's. frankly, it's hard to figure out what obama's foreign policy philosophy is. he needs to talk about broken promises and incompetent and link the broken promises and incompetent and the foreign policy to those in the economic policy. i thought the speech today was good. it gave the right and his supporters some red meat. they like to hear things like leading from behind and all of that, but i hope he saves up some ammo for the foreign policy debate and lays out an argument we've talked about of criticizing obama's foreign policy from the left. what do you think about that, john that? >> i think there are places where that's do y-able where yo can criticize it from the left. mitt romney has to show the public he can pass that commander in chief test. i think this speech today was aimed at that. of course, everybody that gives a speech on foreign policy calls it a major speech on foreign policy. never hear anybody give a minor speech. you know, i also still think there's something that mitt romney has to do to delineate himself from barack obama right now in a lot of the same way that he was
an argument we've talked about of criticizing obama's foreign policy from the left. what do you think about that, john that? >> i think there are places where that's do y-able where yo can criticize it from the left. mitt romney has to show the public he can pass that commander in chief test. i think this speech today was aimed at that. of course, everybody that gives a speech on foreign policy calls it a major speech on foreign policy. never hear anybody give a minor speech. you know, i also still think there's something that mitt romney has to do to delineate himself from barack obama right now in a lot of the same way that he was comparing himself to obama's failures on the economy as he would put it. this was a failure on foreign policy sort of speech that didn't necessarily delineate what mitt romney would actually do. there were words, hope isn't a strategy, but what is mitt romney's strategy that's different from barack obama's with regard to israel and iran? >> jonathan, real quick, this was a speech rife from specifics everything from building 15 ships a year and three submarines t
's talking about. >> greg: at least he mentioned china. the only time president obama talks about china is when he is looking at the wilson phillips records. remember her? she was adorable. my revelation -- >> bob: who is wilson phillips? >> greg: don't worry about it. my revelation is the foreign response to romney debate, yikes in 12 languages. reassuring that governor romney has potential foreign policy powerhouse that the world is spooked by him. that is important. good to have the neighbors scared of you than the reverse. having lived in hell's kitchen that is the way to be. it's a macro hell's kitchen. crazy, creepy people out there. good they're terrified of the united states. >> bob: about romney? >> greg: spooked about anybody willing to use force rather than -- let's go back. focus on iran. remember in 2009 how president obama reacted to iran. a muted response. then he said he was troubled. his rough stance was a frown. that is what romney is talking about. >> dana: the other thing, his message to the debate is return america to position of economic strength and growth. if you
people will be talking about biden, and then a couple of more with romney and obama. >> bill: yeah, i was surprised and impressed, i guess that obama proved -- so he didn't have a good night, we all know that, but i thought he bounced back pretty quickly the next day. he has been having a lot of fun with the big bird line. and it showed a lot of resilience, i thought, and as you point out the job numbers came on friday which gave him another little boost, cutting the impact of any romney bounce. >> yeah he has an incredible amount of fire and energy when it is his back up against the wall. >> bill: yeah. >> it's almost like he puts himself in positions like that so that he can get excited about politics again. he obviously didn't want to be on that stage, wednesday night. you could just tell he was like, god, 90 minutes. i'm just going to stand here for 90 minutes and let this guy say stuff, and then he sees that the entire nation is mocking him, and then he gets fired up. his aids were talking about the way you could see he was gripping the podium. it is a tell
the obama campaign is saying and what the romney campaign is not. >> a favorite talking point of the obama campaign is mitt romney's economic proposals would simply reinstate the tax cut and deregulation policy that led to the 2008 financial meltdown. two things should be said about this claim. one is it's gone unanswered by the romney camp and the second is it's utterly invalid. the tax cut put in place under president bush in 2001 and 2003 cannot be blamed for the mortgage market collapse that triggered the great recession. in fact, they can be credited with helping the economy out of the recession of 2001, 2002, and with helping overcome the economic damage from hurricane katrina. by the way, that expansion, and the tax revenue it produced were sufficient to drive down the federal budget deficit for 2005 through 2007. this despite massive war spending. as for deregulation, president obama himself said former president bush put more regulations in place than he has at the same time frame. it is true that there is one bit of deregulation regularly blamed by the liberal economists for help
of preview of that debate? will this be a preview for the obama camp to see what they will be talking about, coming up? caller: it will be a chance for governor romney to do a preview, yes. the thing that i think occurred many times before, romney camp -- came out and named a lot of these things fairly forcefully. from what we saw yesterday, this will be an even stronger reputation of his view on those issues. getting out on the campaign trail at these paul ryan events, particularly when it comes to the issue of things like foreign aid and how this country deals with the resources when it comes to other places, we do not exactly see that relationship being reciprocal. it is something that has gotten a surprising amount of attention on the trail over the last few weeks. it could be an area where the mitt romney campaign is looking forward as they decided to hold this speech. host: one piece of the speech that was released yesterday, let us know what is new from this part that has come now. "we will prevent iran from host: are these new ideas? or thinks he has talked about before? caller: it
of the pivot which president obama's talked about the pivot to the pacific has been generally thought of as the way forward and the coming 20 years so it's hard to see where governor romney ends up on providing new alternatives. one thing sort of surprised me why hasn't he played general eisenhower, vote for me, i'll end the war in afghanistan as opposed to korea? so the notion that an aggressive approach to the war in afghanistan i think is weakest thought of all. >> certainly the message that they're trying to evoke today is peace through strength. there's governor bob mcdonald speaking before mitt romney. one thing to check in on is how the others on the ticket are doing and more developing news to discuss with vice presidential nominee paul ryan to talk to voters in the northwestern ohio town of swanton. it's swing for the republican ticket looking to make gains in the all-important battleground state of ohio and point out early voting is under way. ron motte joins me now from telephone. what are we expecting today? >> reporter: there, thomas. probably a few minutes from getting s
obama. >> you talked about mr. romney's debate performance. we know the vice presidential debate is this week and there had been memorable moments before. we remember this from four years ago. >> nice to meet you. hey, can i call you joe? >> you can call me joe. >> can i call you joe. that was sarah palin holding her own against joe biden and this memorable moment from 1998 debate, vice presidential candidate lloyd bentsen saying this to dan quayle as he said he he had as much experience as jfk. >> jack kennedy was a friend of mine. senator, you're no jack kennedy. >> two very memorable lines but you made an interesting observation. >> they are quite famous but both were uttered by losing candidates. paul ryan and joe biden know the stakes are huge for this debate. this is brand-new terrain for ryan. biden has more pressure on him than last week after the man at the top of the ticket did not deliver. >> rick klein with the bigger picture, thank you. >>> a reminder right here, "one on one, the candidates debate" on thursday night, diane and george right at the desk. jake tapper an
the obama camp coming next. >> players talk about what they need to do to keep last night's disappointing when from -- loss from carrying over. >> the forecast is coming next. 52 at the airport. 56 near the inner harbor. >> live, local, late-breaking. this is wbal tv 11 news at 6:00 p.m. with rob daniels and donna hamilton, your insta-weatherplus forecast with chief meteorologist tom tasselmyer, sports, and skyteam 11 covering breaking news. >> more people have been infected with a deadly fungal meningitis from contaminated steroid injections. five cases in maryland. the total number has soared to 105 of people second and the number of deaths is at 8. the tainted steroids were used in injection's given to back pain patients july through september. the massachusetts pharmacy has recalled all its products. health officials say 76 medical facilities in 23 states receive the contaminated injections. for complete list, you can go to our website, wbaltv.com and click on medical alert. new polls show the race for the white house is tightening more with republican presidential nominee mitt romney
're talking about. and barack obama immediately goes down and starts looking at his paper again. >> why didn't he bring an oxygen tank, the theory about the altitude. a couple things. first of all, everyone thought, well, this is obama's strong suit, so of course he's going to do well. that's why it still resonates because he did badly. he didn't do well, number one. number two, people say debates don't matter. guess what, they do if you blow it. and number three, what's interesting going forward into this week, i think it puts pressure on joe biden, maybe exactly what the obama team didn't want, which is biden to feel the pressure of having to do well, which maybe is not a good place for biden to be. >> he's going to be great. he's going to be great. >> he's going to have fun. he's actually going to -- >> he is used to it. >> yes. >> unlike the president. >> and his decades working in congress will help. i think paul ryan is outmatched. you know what? whenever we say this before the debate, we set them up. sam stein, do you agree? >> i thought the president did wonderful. no. i'm surprised
with never missing opinions. he talks about america and another four years with obama. we look at how it is run the 2012 campaign how it is conducting foreign policy how it paralyzed economic growth and solutions being offered by the romney, ryan ticket and do they have the country's answers? because the donald has been less than silent on the abysmal obama record he like so many on the right have been subjected to ridicule by the president and his team out of chicago. >> can the president do more to show leadership on being transparent with regard to documents, records, his own background that's another underlying theme the campaigns are going at. >> are you talking about donald trump? >> i know he has been taking flack lately but no one is happier no one is prouder to put this birth certificate record to rest than the doll nald. >> looking to continue to bring up is college records. >> the donald trump question which i think he is the one who brings it up the most. >> last year at this time on this very weak end we finally delivered justice to one of the world's most notorious indiv
with president obama when we talked about drilling and gas prices went up and we had the financial implosion and president obama went on to win. is this a concern for the white house? it has to be. >>eric: a couple of states including wisconsin, and ohio, gasoline prices have soared over the last couple of months, in some cases 50 cent as gallon. these are important states for both candidates? >>guest: this will be more of an issue in the debate. mitt romney raised it last week and president obama blamed exxon mobil and they fired back at the president when he suggested changing the tax law to affect that company and it will come up in the v.p. debate and more down the stretch especially if prices are around $4 a gallon. >>eric: what do you think of the idea of relaxing the epa standards? the way i understand it, it is the california epa standard and keeping the national epa standard in place with the blending requirement. what do you think of that idea? >>guest: i'm not an energy expert but the politicians always have to be active in this situation you cannot just it is back and all the peo
different. >> you were just in iran, what did you make of mitt romney's strong words on iran? >> he talks about how he would not lead iran did away with having a nuclear weapon. already, barack obama has imposed the harshest sanctions in history on iran. it is hard to imagine any other president being able to do that. george w. bush was not able to impose a similar level of sanctions. it took obama going out there and saying that he would meet with the iranians. that allowed him to form his coalition. i do not -- i really am waiting for mitt romney to lay out specifics on how you would be different than obama. >> how did he talk about what happened in benghazi and the death of the ambassador without seeming to exploit it? >> he sort of said obama botched the response to benghazi. frankly, his first response was not the best response. he botched his first response in terms of coming out swinging, politicizing it to soon. there is a hesitancy for him to politicize it again. there is this window opening for mitt romney and he wants to take it. you can say the administration dropped the ball,
governor romney a liar and a cheater and blame jim lehrer for not -- obama talked four minutes more but that we're going to hear tonight. he's a liar and cheater, that's really a pathetic answer to what happened in that debate. and if he was a liar the president should have called him out on it. why didn't president challenge him? >> somebody want to talk? >> the most important -- >> governor rendell, i'd like to hear governor rendell's response to that first, i'm sorry. >> i don't believe you call people a liar, et cetera. look there's no question -- >> axelrod. >> -- governor romney changed his position in that debate radically. first of all he said he would sign the ryan budget which has a 20% tax cut across the board for everybody including the richest americans. number two he never explained and the president didn't call him on it how he'll account for that almost $5 trillion cut, plus the $2 trillion in military spending that they advocate which the defense department and the generals haven't even asked for. there's been no explanation of that and that's a pretty important iss
of the obama administration that republicans and romney are referring to? >> well, i think he's talking about what just happened in this fiasco in libya. governor romney had a good week talking about the economy. they want to definele what will be talked about this week on the if foreign policy front. they'll have a hearing about what went on the in libya on the security side leading up to the attack there. that's what he wants to set the stage for. if they talk about foreign policy this week, he wants it to define the terms on which we have that debate. >> because words matter, you started off with with saying i think that's what governor romney was talking about. an ongoing investigation into what happened in libya. obviously, aa he great concern. but you could not answer that question with certainty of what epic failure governor romney and republicans believe has happened over the past four years under this president's leadership, under secretary of state hillary clinton here. that is still unclear even after that 25-minute speech a couple of hours ago. >> he made the case that the middle
the obama campaign. so i always loved the chance to be able to talk like this, because i hope there's something in my story that might be inspiring for other people as you try to achieve your own success. washington was on the other side of the world when i was growing up and now it's a little more accessible. but we cannot forget we need to dream big dreams, as my boss likes to tell my two small children. we will talk a little today about my path to the white house. just quickly, i like to say everything i learned, i learned on the campaign trail. there's always a winner and loser. the political environment just like the business world, is highly competitive. with every campaign season there's always a new crop of start-ups. innovation incubators. and so, i guess the campaign is a little bit of an entrepreneurial showcase. i think a lot of us think we see these ads and i guess keeping the campaign is disliked a big marketing machine that spits out the ads we see on tv and the candidates are sending mail to us an e-mail to our in box and the phone calls and so forth. but if you peel
. polls open at 7:00 in philly, close at 8:00. that's what we're talking about. >> okay. let's take a look, president obama spoke to his hollywood backers last night at an l.a. fund-raiser. it sounded like he realized how bad things went. he wasn't as good as you were right now mayor nutter but let's take a look. >> everybody here is incredible professionals, such great friends, and they just perform flawlessly night after night. i can't always say the same. back in 2008 everybody always remembers the victory, but they don't always remember the bumps in the road. things always look good in retrospect, but in the middle of it we made all kinds of mistakes. we goofed up. i goofed up, but the american people carried us forward. >> he doesn't look too happy in having to be self-deprecating, howard, it's not his favorite pastime saying i blew it. >> it's borderline cringe-worthy. i think the people inside know, as has been said and reported, just how bad it was. my reporting tells me that the professional preparers, you know, there's a kind of class of professional debate preparers here in wash
to talk what they strive to do is paint a contrast betwee them and the obama administration. the contra becom p thr posturg. hoare we going to approh foreign policy differently? the posture is that obama's foreign policy is lead from behind, i think mitt romney is really lean forward. we're trying to use our influence in the middle east to -- but really we're trying to use our influence in the region to get the outcomes we want in order to shape the policies that we want, in order to receive the outcomes that we want in the middle east. >> let's be honest, posturing is what we've got here. was his speech heavy on detail or light on detail? >> i'm stealing this from someone on twitter who said the difference between romney and obama on foreign policy is romney says speak louder but carry the same stick. sort of teddy roosevelt line. what's striking in the speech is overall the differences between romney and obama on foreign policy are not actually that great. it's about how do we deal with the syrian rebels and romney's more forthright but still hedging about whether we're going to arm t
after president obama said, we want assad out of power. he has substantive things to talk about on the debate stage when they debate foreign policy in two weeks and that ad is now irrelevant. >> don't you think this is a case of him saying, i'll do the things the president is trying to do but do them more effectively? >> there's a fair case to make and there's an opening for that. >> i agree. i'm not saying that's a bad thing. >> there's an opening the size of a pin drop. he didn't lay out his strategy for peace in israel. on iran, the best he could come up with was, i'm going to get tougher on iran because i'm going to have tougher sanctions. >> when barack obama came to office, he said, i'm not george w. bush, so therefore, i can negotiate with iran. >> he said he would open up all doors but he wasn't going to give you a seat at the table unless you wanted to come and talk peace. >> we have unsolicited advice on the other side of the break including helpful hints for donald trump. stay with us. ♪ ♪ [ male announcer ] its lightweight construction makes it nimble... ♪ its
talking about the middle east. you used the words leading from behind. mitt romney used it at least once in the speech. the speech was an attempt to say, this is what barack obama has done. here is what i would do. it was tonal more than specific. it was more we need to be bigger, more aggressive whether it's iran or another syria. it was broadly philosophically we need a stronger, more muscular approach. >> on several points he's critical on iran because he would have opposed the initial attempt to open up towards iran and thinks the president didn't go far enough at all in supporting the green revolution of students in iran in june of 2009. the response from the obama team is that the iranian leaders, the reform leaders, student revolutionaries were saying, don't be too overt. it will have a backlash effect. that can be e debated. on sanctions they are criticizing the failure to go tougher though the president arguably did better than george bush in getting russia and china to permit tougher sanctions. they are focused on the sanctions the treasury department opposed. those on the cent
obama was comfortably up. in a gallup poll he was up by five points. and a certain talk show host made this prediction. >> so barring a major miracle i'm calling the election right now. it's already over. >> cenk: oops. the gallup poll out today 47%-47%. for those of you math-challenged, that would be a tie. what did i say again? it's already over. >> cenk: oh, boy. now, that was just one poll. i have other polls for you. gallup, as i just showed you the 47-47 post debate. rasmussen 49-47 but that's rasmussen. polite co-,an one-point lead for president obama. when you put that all together it is not good news. what did i say again? >> it's already over. >> cenk: oops. okay, it gets worse. pew out today. 45-49--the fore four-point lead--disaster. what did that idiot say? >> cenk: it's already over. >> cenk: 12 different poll versus romney going up on average 4.5% since the debate give it to me one more time. >> it's already over. >> cenk: okay, now i'm going to show you why you shouldn't panic and why that idiot talk show host is not wrong. but first i got to say something more importan
office when she signs legislation. i'm talking about those who say i support president obama, but then those same people don't express enthusiasm. >> yeah. i mean, the thing is that speaking to young people, when i was out in denver for the debate, there was definitely more enthusiasm in 2008 because it was something new. it was a movement. i think what is starting to creep up is the fact that the differences in policy between the two parties and the fact that the obama campaign has been stressing. you have a party that's against immigration. we are for immigration. it's helping to creep up murng voters and maybe we're not as interested for a while. >> before we go, i want to show a little bit of this campaign ad with victor cruz that nbc latino tweeted the out as well. this is one of the ways to ramp up the enthusiasm. let's play that one. >> i want people to get hyped up for election day. just like game day, it determines the winners and losers. so get out there and vote. >> this is a new ad with victor cruz. >> that's right. they're using eva longoria. there's been a lot o
would be happy the to talk about it. >> politico, george washington university showing obama leading romney by only one point. other tracking we are still waiting on shows narrowing of the race. >> if you look at the polls going into the debate the president was at the highest he's been and in the strongest political position at this stage in the debate. romney was going to consolidate more support and even folks in the obama campaign said romney was likely to get a bump in the polls from his performance. you know, it was always close and will continue to be close. >> i think neither side is going to get a blowout, but i think the debate helped give mitt romney the gap that will decrease. mitt romney showed he has the capability of being president. >> we have to go. congratulations on the baby. lots of luck. >> thank you. >> in today's amr moment we have a look at the good, the bad and the ugly from sunday's nfl match-ups. first to new orleans where drus pushed into the record books with the saints first touchdown against the chargers made it 48 straight games with at least one touch
. and they have both talked about tougher sanctions. obama administration is moving, coordinating with the europeans on tougher sanctions against iran. even as it leaves the door open to diplomacy. i'm not sure what mitt romney can do to except escalate the military option that would differentiate, be that different than what the obama administration has done. >> we also hear that in this speech today he'll emphasize the solution of a two-state solution and when we saw that videotape of a fund-raiser earlier this year, he dismissed that. how important is that in the big picture of foreign policy? >> well, at the moment, the peace process is dead and both men also talk about a two-state solution so again i'm not sure that it's one that will really differentiate the candidates. but it is true that mitt romney has a much stronger relationship with the prime minister of israel and there's almost open hostility between president obama and benjamin netanyahu. >> it does seem that often in campaigns that we talk about the lack of foreign policy experience for many of these candidates and
playing obama, and apparently, he was pretty rough on him. and really talk back to him and said, you cannot do that, you have done this bad day, which he is not used to hearing, but he took it, because he understood this was the performance of his life. and it was the performance of his life. he had an unwilling co- conspirator in obama, who did not show up to play, but i think this would have been a great debate for him the matter what. he was really on, and he had worked hard to be on, and he is a very knowledgeable person. >> the threat of the guillotine can focus the mind. people do not realize that romney is a very smart man. he is articulate, and he is capable. we saw this in the primary, and absorbing a lot of information about his opponents, and then spitting it back out. folks forget, this is one of the most evenly matched debates on the presidential level and i did not know how many years. george w. bush, john mccain, bob dole, they were not debaters. the republicans finally have someone on the state that could take it to a democratic challenger. >> colby? >> the prospect o
ourselves under president obama. >> "a-team" is here to talk about a challenger who is serving. we have big dreams. one is for a clean, domestic energy future that puts us in control. our abundant natural gas is already saving us money, producing cleaner electricity, putting us to work here in america and supporting wind and solar. though all energy development comes with some risk, we're committed to safely and responsibly producing natural gas. it's not a dream. america's natural gas... putting us in control of our energy future, now. music is a universal language. but when i was in an accident... i s worried the health care system spoke a language allts own with unitedhealthcare, i got help that fit my life. information on my phone. connection to doctors who get where i'm from. and tools to estimate what my care may cost. so i never missed a beat. we're more than 78,000 people looking out for more than 70 million americans. that's health in numbers. unitedhealthcare. ♪ lou: my next guest made his riding debut last week with an amazing new novel that offers, well, a withering, somewhat
have not talked about the big, you know, the big gorilla in the room, and that is organized labor, which will pump $400 million to $450 million into the race like four years ago. obama here, romney here, outside groups on behalf of romney evening it up, and labor comes in like this. the president will out spend mitt romney. lou: when you talk about the gorilla there, it's not just union money, but ground forces going to work. are you satisfied that governor romney has a sufficient ground force ready to meet what will be a daunting ground operation on the part of the president obama? >> well, i don't know state-by-state, but i have talked to some of the people involved in some of these states who are old political hands and know what's going on. in ohio, they are already blowing through the 2004 bush ground game metrics with one exception -- voter registration. you have -- neither party's done a good job on registration this year. yeah, wisconsin, ohio, virginia, i mean, all the reports you hear from people paying close tension to it is that the ground game is big, massive, and str
obama and mitt romney. >> dave wood, our war correspondent extraordinaire there will be talk affidavit war in afghanistan. mitt romney had words about the president's treatment of iraq. let's focus on the afghanistan question. it's the 11-year anniversary of the war, yesterday, i believe. mitt romney had an interesting romneyesque take on afghanistan saying he would pursue a real and successful transition to the afghan security forces by the end of 2014 and goes on to say outlining an exit date is pricely the misstep the president made. let's play that sound if we have it. >> in afghanistan, i will pursue a real and successful transition to afghan security forces by the end of 2014. president obama would have you believe anyone who disagrees with his decisions in afghanistan is arguing for endless war. but the route to war and to potential attacks at home is a politically timed retreat that abandons the afghan people to the same extremists who aravage their country. i will evaluate conditions on the ground and weigh the best advice of our military commanders. >> to me that sounds like
astonished president obama was to see this guy. where's this guy been? even talking about the canned receive reference to a tv show it's kind of canned, right? you can see him in the flow a little bit. it sounds pretty good. can the president recover and be the casual loose guy? probably. we'll see in a couple of days. >> even the clip we played setting aside the "friday night lights" reference. hard for me to say anything criminal about that but mitt romney looked dishevelled, sweaty. those stories of how he worked with some of his brethren in the mormon church are moving and a lot of us thought, why has this not been a foundational aspect of your campaign. the new illustration on the corner of the new yorker shows mitt romney debating with an empty chair. a referendum on the president's performance. that said the president raised $181 million in september and unemployment is below 8%. >> the problem for the president isn't what's happening with the int interpretation of what's happening. perception becomes reality. i didn't think his debate performance was terrible. if uh you look at the g
